HIGH HEAT ALERT ISSUED FOR TODAY
A high heat alert has been issued for this afternoon. This is an alert for our electrical region that we may have a higher than normal demand for electrical energy.
Although it is currently raining in Rochelle, there are hotter cities in the region that will place additional demands on the electrical grid. This can drive up prices overall for the peak demand as shared in earlier RMU communications with the community.
To save energy and money, turn up the air conditioning a few degrees and instead of turning on the stove and/or oven, enjoy dinner out at one of the local establishments.
If you have any questions, please contact RMU Customer Service at 815-562-4155.
